This placed Marion County 41st among all 115 Missouri counties for speeding tickets issued and 49th per capita according to a survey performed by Missouri Ticket Lawyer. Most of the speeding tickets issued in Marion County were for speeds of 11-15 mph and 16-19 mph over the posted limit. These are predominately for motorists traveling on 24 highway (US-24) near Palmyra, 61 Highway (US-61) near Hannibal, and Highway 36 (US-36) between Hannibal and Monroe City. With 3 major highways crossing through Marion County it shouldn’t be a surprise that many motorists find themselves of a law firm that practices traffic law defense.
If you have been issued a FCC speeding ticket or traffic citation, you have 3 options:
1. Plead guilty to the FCC and have a conviction on your driving record. This will also add 3 points to your Missouri driver’s license and potentially cause your insurance rates to jump.
2. Plead not guilty to the FCC and appear in front of a judge at Marion County Courthouse in Hannibal
3. Hire a law firm that practices speeding ticket and traffic law defense in Marion County like Missouri Ticket Lawyer.
